As reported by Kicker, Pál Dárdai will remain as the head coach of Hertha Berlin as they prepare for life in the 2. Bundesliga.
The Old Lady have recently been in discussions with a number of other candidates surrounding the head coach role. However, the decision has been made and Dárdai will be given the chance to guide Hertha back to the Bundesliga.
Investor ‘777 partners’ have also given the green light on Dárdai, with an official announcement expected shortly. Nevertheless, there will be changes to Dárdai’s management team as the former assistant head coach Vedad Ibišević will become a junior coach for the club.
Dárdai was handed the opportunity to save Die Alte Dame from relegation when Sandro Schwarz was dismissed after Hertha’s 5-2 defeat to Schalke on matchday 28. However, with six games left and five points away from safety there was very little room for error and despite an improvement in performances; Hertha were relegated.
This will now be the third time that Dárdai has been appointed as the permanent manager of Hertha after his previous spells from 2015-2019 and the calendar year of 2021. Under the stewardship of Dárdai in his first spell at the club, The Old Lady could enjoy life as an upper to mid-table side in the Bundesliga which is a life unimaginable for Hertha fans now.
